Those people who deliver the Shuswap Market News – carriers and drivers – came with their families to the Shuswap Rowing and Paddling Club’s annual open house on Saturday, June 2 at the paddling centre at Canoe Beach.
Circulation manager Kimm Mitchell, who invited them, described the event as “awesome. Everyone had a blast.”
The day featured instruction and demos, including a demo of a six-person outrigger canoe and a dragon boating demo.
She says more than 30 carriers, drivers and their family members had an opportunity to try out rowing and an outrigger canoe.
“It was a chance for them to come and try something different.”
Mitchell is planning another get-together for carriers later in the season.
The club promotes being the only paddling and rowing centre in the Shuswap for dragon boating, outrigger canoeing, rowing and kayaking.
